Yossi Klein Halevi: “What is Expected of a Survivor People: Lessons My Father Taught Me”

Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lectures

8th Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture
Yossi Klein Halevi:
“What is Expected of a Survivor People: Lessons My Father Taught Me”
5 June 2011

World-renowned journalist and author Yossi Klein Halevi will address the following questions: What would today’s Jewish world look like from the perspective of a Holocaust survivor? Where have we as a people succeeded and where have we failed? For the first time in his life, Yossi Klein Halevi will confront this challenge from a very personal viewpoint — the worldview of his father, a Holocaust survivor.

Yossi Klein Halevi is an author and journalist based in Jerusalem and a fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute. He is a contributing editor to The New Republic and a frequent commentator on Middle East affairs, contributing to the opinion pages of the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal and other publications.

Our speaker has personal connections to the Avrech family that enhance the meaning of this event. Two years ago, Avrech offspring #3 married Yossi’s maternal nephew.

In addition, Yossi and Robert attended the same high school, Brooklyn Talmudic Academy.
